There is an old saying that goes, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." The short film Paper Dreams illustrates just how true that is and includes some beautifully detailed automotive models to get the point across.

Paul started crafting paper model kits as a hobby, and as he grew up, he began creating whole paper cars from scratch. Eventually the detailed miniatures even included usually unseen elements like water pumps and suspension pieces – even the wiring. The movie tells the story of how crafting a replica of a Red Bull RB7 from 6,500 parts eventually got Paul his dream job.

It's amazing what the combination of time, effort and talent can create. Scroll down to watch this inspiring story and marvel at these fabulous models.

      Paper model designers are a small and rare subset of all paper modelers...unusually gifted...and not usually well compensated for their commercial work in the hobby. Paul is supremely fortunate in finding such an opportunity to use his talents in this way. Congrats, Paul !

      "Paper Dreams" is a story of Siemens’ digital multi-channel magazine /answers, for which renowned filmmakers take a personal look at the lives of people benefitting from Siemens technology. See why Paul and the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team owe a little bit of their success to Siemens: http://sie.ag/1pydlLC

      Good thing he didn't pick Ferrari to model and blog about. It would have been stolen by the mobsters, I mean the layers, of the prancing donkey, and this guy left with nothing to show for his hard work. Good to know RedBull knows how to capitalize on good press, and know it when they see it. Good work Paul!!
